You can design in photoshop, Canva or your favorite graphic design software and upload the design to Garment Creator. For best results, select sRGB colors when creating data to be printed on a T-shirt. sRGB colors are closer to the actual print results. You can print in TIFF, JPEG, PNG, BMP. file formats. We generally use PNG files as they have a transparent background.
Under the Print Settings tab in Garment Creator there are several presets for different shirt colors. The color wheel next to the preset shows what colors will be used for that preset.
Black t-shirts that will not be using black ink (it uses the black of the shirt instead, saving ink!), select Black Color T-shirt (Use Garment Black)
Light t-shirts (white, light gray, etc.) that do not need a layer of white ink before laying down other colors, select Light Color T-Shirt (Standard)
Dark color t-shirts that need a layer of white ink and will be using black, select Dark Color t-shirt (standard)
Dark t-shirts that will only be using white ink to print, select the Dark Color T-Shirt (White)
Plug the K20S heat press in and switch it on. It is pre-programmed to heat to 350 degrees The press .will beep when it has heated to the pre-set temperature (this takes about 15 minutes). The pressure should read 5 or 6 for optimum results. See the LibGuide for the Heat Press if you are unsure how to set the pressure.
